You can't understand the world today if you don't understand corruption. Every day, we see high-level government officials resigning, governments changing, hundreds of thousands of people standing in squares, holding up signs, and often risking their lives to protest the corruption in the world. It's critically important to the health of our societies to understand what people are protesting against. We want to understand corruption. This course is designed to teach you about what corruption is, what causes corruption, the effects of corruption, and how to control corruption. We'll be talking about this from a global perspective using examples from all over the world. We'll also be talking about corruption from the perspective of countries, governments, businesses, citizens, and the people within these entities. At the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of why the world is changing according to the path of corruption. If you're in a position to make changes within your respective entity, to make decisions about corruption, you'll be able to make better decisions.

by Linda completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Short with a strong punch. This class should be required for anyone who wants to understand how democracy and capitalism work in the real world, or how government and businesses relate to one another, or how ethics matter in practice. Bear with the first module, which is a bit low-key, because the remaining three are remarkable, and the supplemental materials are worth reading or viewing. As is typical of my experience with the Coursera platform, the discussion engagement and quality is poor. On the positive side, that let's you complete the course more quickly.
